From the Road Station you can see Mt. Fuji and the active volcanic action. When we were there you had to take a bus to the lake as the volcanic activity was too intense.

The Hakone Pass is highly recommended, it made getting around to the various sights much easier. The lady who sold us ours, suggested we take the train for the first part of our journey to the hotel as the buses were caught in a traffic jam, and it didn't cost any extra with our pass. A very helpful timely tip... More

You really need to go to the Hakone Tourist info centre to get your maps, bus timetables, general info, Hakone pass etc as it would otherwise be a bit of mystery. Even for independently minded travellers, as this one is, I am very pleased that I made the effort and put aside my pride to ask.

funny to be called free pass - because it is not free but well worth it. transition between all modes of transportation is seamless and easy - no waiting to buy tickets at each stop. best is to do overnight trip from tokyo because the pass is good for two days - gives you more time to use it and...

The Hakone Free Pass costs about ¥5000 from the Shinjuku train station (Odakyu Tourist centre) but is a worthwhile investment considering that it allows you to travel around Hakone using every possible mode of public transport available (train, cable car, ropeway, bus and even a cruise). For a faster ride, buy the romance car ticket that enables you to ride... More

Definitely the easiest way to navigate Hakone attractions. Don't balk at the price 5000 yen - having all your tickets together smooths the way and allows you to enjoy the views and experience worry free.

We came in via train from Kyoto (Y11,750/person), arriving in Odawara. Only planned to spend 1 afternoon + 1 evening before heading on to Tokyo. So buying a "2-day" Y3,900 pass, might not have been financially better, but it certainly was easier than trying to price out fares individually for the 5 various types of transport (train, cable car, ropeway,...

This pass is very good value although, unfortunately, it's not actually free. In 2012, it costs Y5000. It includes a return train trip from Tokyo to the Hakone area and then up to 2 days use of local buses, cable cars, trains and the pirate cruise boats on Lake Ashi. It also gives discounts at local attractions etc. The Rapid... More
